I purchased this due to the great reviews. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now and honestly I'm not sure what to think. I know my eyes do not look any worse! I have not seen any reduction in lines under my eyes or crows feet but I think my eyes have definitely been less puffy in the morning. This does not burn, sting or cause any redness, it did not dry my skin but I do put an eye moisturizer on over it. I'm going to use it until its gone and hope I see a difference. I would re-purchase as I think a glycolic eye cream is a staple for me being over 35, but if I can find one that really does help with the lines, this one is history!

I bought this after reading the reviews on MUA. Let me just state that my family members have a tendency to age around the eyes area. This is severe enough that insurance companies have been willing to pay for eye surgery due to vision issues (upper lid dramatically sags). Also, we have a tendency to have very crepy under eyes.
Anyway, I was getting desperate and even using Tazorac underneath my eyes to try to diminish the crepiness. All I did was leave my under eye area extremely dry and peeling and looking worse...then I tried MD Forte Skin Rejuvenation Eye Cream. IT IS AMAZING! I've been using it morning and night with a moisturizing eye cream on top AND SPF for eyes. After 2 weeks I looked in the mirror at work and was completely shocked at how good my undereyes looked. I can't wait to see what I look like in a few more weeks! It's definitely recommended and it's an Allergan product (maker of Botox and Latisse) so they know anti-aging!

I am really not sure how to rate. I have been using this for 3 weeks and haven't seen any results. I have sensitive skin but have not experienced any of the side effects others report. Has anyone had the same experience and still seen results after further weeks?

I was impressed by everyone's comments and believing this is the HG of eye creams I tried it out. I was very disappointed. Not only was there no visible impact on my lines, but I'd wake after three weeks of using I woke up to find my upper lid and bottom part of my eye covered in tiny red spots. I've since discontinued it.

I've been using this for about 3 months. I bought it based on the good reviews here. It's ok, and I haven't had any problems with redness, peeling etc, but neither has it made any difference whatsover to the fine lines around my eyes. It was very expensive and I was expecting a lot. Bit disappointed, really. I will use it up but will not repurchase.

I agree with everyone else's comments, I've used this cream for two years now and some friends were miffed that I haven't aged like they have - no wrinkles under my eyes - and this is why. And that's despite the fact I have fine, pale skin and used to sunbathe all summer. Holy grail indeed. In fact when I met my friends who I hadn't seen in years, I was shocked that they were so wrinkly under the eyes, I didn't know this is normal for our age group, because of this cream, it makes me look and therefore feel much younger then I am. By the way I smoke too, heavily, I should look like a turtle, pleased to say quite the contrary.

LOVE LOVE LOVE, my HG eye cream! I've been using this for years, and even though it's on the more medium expensive side (i get it online for around $40-something, but at least it's not $90+ like some brands!), I have to have it because it's the only eye cream that helps with my milia! Since it has glycolic acid and vitamin A, it's very exfoliating which prevents and helps get rid of milia. Obviously, people have different issues that are their priority when it comes to eye skin, but for me, milia is a big issue (I also have syringoma, which are flesh-colored little bumps, while the milia are white bumps, lucky me!) so rather than wrinkle-fighting or whatever else, I really care about if an eye cream does not cause milia. This eye cream helps prevent milia and it has made my undereye a lot smoother overall. I'm still young so I don't have crows feet or anything, but it seems to be preventing wrinkles and "rejuvenating" my undereye area like it says! I have recommended it to my sister already, and I plan on continuing to purchase/use it as long as it's available (please please don't discontinue!). FYI, I only use a SMALL amount since using too much of anything could clog pores. Also, I have sensitive skin, but using this once nightly as directed has not caused any skin irritation or eye watering. My sister has just started using it, and not being used to acids and vitamin a, it caused some flakiness so she reduced use to once every other night. I think there's a short adjustment period at the beginning while your skin adapts, but after that, I've had no issues!

As I neared age 50, wrinkles and cross-hatching fine lines appeared around my eyes. I tried numerous antiaging eye creams that seem to do little more than provide moderate moisture. This eye cream got a lot of positive reviews here at MUA, so I decided to try it. As many reviewers have experienced, the skin around my eyes looked awful at first. The lines were more pronounced and my skin was bright red, sore and appeared dehydrated. I took the advice to ride it out for a few days and layer a hydrating eye cream over it. Well, after a week of applying it every night, I saw no improvement, so I stopped the treatment. 24 hours later, the redness, soreness and dryness went away, and I was elated to see that my wrinkles were about 50% improved and the cross-hatching fine lines were very faint or disappeared in some areas. I guess my undereye skin is very sensitive, cos after using this eye cream for 9 mos, I still can't apply it daily w/o experiencing the aforementioned skin problems. However, I can apply it every other night w/o adverse effects and still maintain my good results.

I can't believe that I haven't written a review for this yet. It is my HG of eye treatments. Absolutely amazing. I have been using for almost 3 years now. It helped a lot with undereye circles and fine lines/crows feet. It did make my lines worse in the beginning, but after a few months my eyes looked so much better than ever. I use it pretty much nightly. The bottle lasts for about 5 months for me, so it really is inexpensive all things considered (after all you only use a few drops around the eye area).

This is the worst product i have ever used. Please do not use it. It caused redness and irritation under my eyes. Also more fine lines and my skin looks creepy. I have stopped it from two weeks and still this area is soooo sensitive. BE CAREFUL

this product is the ONLY one that has worked - i had crepy skin around the eyes and two fairly deepish creases under both eyes which have both definately softened - i wish i had taken a pic before and after so i could really compare - because my lines were not that bad in the first place - however, i have noticed a difference and i have tried ALOT of different products, ranging from Olay to Gatineau to other high end products - this is the only one that has given me some results - i have been using for about 7 weeks and my eyes are looking sooooo much better - def reccomended - have ordered the MD Forte line, cleanser and lotion and masque - will let you know how i get on - can i say a BIIIIIIIIG thank you to all my MUA buddies - if it wasnt for the reveiws on this fab website i prob would never have purchased - and my lines were really starting to get me down - so THANK YOU MUA BUDDIES!!!!! MWAH!!!!!!!

Update: Had to swap out this eye cream. It started leaving me with raw, red skin. My undereyes were burning all the time. I think it worked for the time I used it, then my skin said no more! Just saying it just stopped working for me. :-(
Very expensive eye cream that works. Those tiny little lines under the eye are going away and the whole undereye area is so smooth. I have even noticed a slight lightening of the immense darkness of my undereye bags. There is not one ounce of moisture in this formula so you would need to add some...face moisturizer would work just fine. Oh and you only need the tiniest amount, so it will last a while.

This is the only product I've found that actually helps minimize the smile lines under my eyes that go down the top of my cheeks. I'm 48 and these lines are getting deeper. This product has alpha-hydroxy acid in it, as well as Vit. A & E. You can use it morning and evening. I usually put a more emollient eye cream over it in the morning because it's more of a treatment than an eye cream. I don't use it daily either, because the area gets a little red when I do. It is SO effective at removing those lines! I'm buying my second bottle. .5 pump bottle (love the pump!) is about $50, less on eBay, so not terribly expensive IMHO.

I have tried so many eye treatments that I lost track. I know that I maybe have too high wishes for products, but I never really find anything worth to say WOW for. This might be the one!!! I been using dermalogica total eye treatment and skinneuticals the last year with some results, but just after one week with this I think I see improvements. Lines are less visible, maybe my dark circles as well. I do hope this in a long run will do more. I use this p.m and a.m and I add some moisture ( dermalogica total eye treatment). I havenīt notice any side effects, dryness etc. Money well spend for this one.

Have been using this for about 5 weeks now and I see a definite difference in the lines and creepiness under my eyes. I use this first at night after cleansing and follow with a good moisturizer. Worth the price!
8/12/09: I continue to absolutely love this product. Ordered a second bottle. Crows feet are looking better! Not perfect but so much better.
1/10/10 Just ordered my 3rd bottle. It lasts a long time. No miracles but definite improvement and I think prevention of worsening lines. It's a keeper.

I have seen great improvement in fine lines around my eyes. Do not use on eyelids!! I sometimes have to use an additional moisturizer as this sometimes dries my underye area but totally worth the price!

This product is FANTASTIC ! I bought this based on MUA reviews and this is product works ! I have been using this for the last two nights. After the very first use my undereye lines are about 3/4 reduced. I did not experience any bad reaction from it but I also used it very scantily, only dabbing it very lightly to just the lines, not the whole under eye area. I also put it on OVER a layer of my M.Asam face serum. When I arrive at work, I usually do a 'line check' in my car mirror & usually have to re-blend my makeup to mask the lines. Today I didn't have to do that. There weren't any ....well, not under my eyes anyway . Tonight I applied it under my serum and also to my forehead lines. The only problem is now my eyes look too good compared to the rest of my face. It's almost as if they're on the wrong face ! This is the only product I have seen that has worked overnight. It's almost too good to be true. Hope it doesn't stop working. Will update on this one !

This product really works! As others have mentioned, when you start using this - your skin will flake, become red and wrinkly. Stick with it. You will see results. I have problems with milia and clogged pores and this product really helps with the milia. After a skin disaster with the Skinceuticals Eye Renewal Gel, the MD Forte eye cream immediately restored my eyes "back to normal". I learned my lesson the hard way and will not try something else. This works for me.

I decided to try this product because of the retinol concentration. After a few days, the area under my eyes became red, wrinkly and crepey, so I scoured all the reviews only to discover this was a normal reaction . It's a part of the whole rejuvenation thing happening. (I specifically bought some good eye moisturizer as this product is not meant to moisturize in any way). So far I like it. I think if i hadn't read other reviews, I would have freaked at seeing my under eye area become so wrinkly etc but seeing how others went through the same thing and came out the other side with great improvements ,has made me stick to it.. i look forward to the long term results.

9/4/10 UPDATE: I've been using this for 1.5 years, and wish I had taken "before" pics. I'm not one to notice small differences, so I can definitely tell a big difference using this. I think the people who don't like it haven't been patient enough. My crow's feet are MUCH improved. This stuff lasts a really long time. I'll definitely continue using.
Wow, what a great find - thanks to MUA! I noticed an immediate difference within just the first week of using it. The only real fine lines/wrinkles I have are under/around my eyes (crow's feet), due to a combination of fair skin, disastrous sun exposure, and years of tugging/pulling on my delicate eye area (putting in contacts, not taking care when removing eye makeup, etc.).
I don't have puffiness or dark circles to contend with, and I've tried everything to find a product that could help me with just this specific "fine lines around eyes" problem. I've tried drugstore brands and high-end products, but with no real results. Until now! I've only been using it for about 4 weeks, and started off using it every other night, which seems to be what my skin can handle. If I start getting red/scaly, I stop using it for a night or two and it's fine. I'll give an update on this review once I've had a chance to use it for a few months. But so far, things are looking good.
